drill to pierce through the 300 foot thick ice. there has to be serious challenge to running equipment like this in this kind of weather? >> the biggest challenge we have got water. it is very cold. so if you have water freezing in hoses that can be devastating. it's for the projects. >> this is the moment the coring machine struck the bottom of the sea floor. a half mile beneath the ice, they made history. it was the first time any one has ever collected sediment from beneath the ice shelf in greenland. >> the ocean beneath is probably the least accessible part of the world ocean. and just getting access to that is a triumph frankly as far as we are concerned. glacier and flets oats on the ocean. they believe it acts like a dam, holding back ice from sliding into the sea. if it goes away, sea levels go up.
2:39 am

2:43 am
investigating those cores, begins. what is your best guess. how old is this? >> so the base of this core -- probably is no more than 10,000 years. >> reporter: ann jennings with institute of arctic and alpine research. she says each core holds clues about peterman glacier's past. >> we didn't really expect to find things living under the ice shelf. we have. >> what have you found? >> this one we found, sivisivides-storfi. >> easy for you to say. >> it is a seashell. single celled animal. >> reporter: the single celled animal like all living creatures made out of car been alug scientists to -- carbon, alug scientists to determine when they lived. take the depth scale here. convert it to age. then we can say when did the ice retreat? how quickly did it retreat? was there a lot of multiwalter
2:44 am
>> you can get all of that from what looks like mud? >> yes. >> reporter: after a week in greenland, we headed home. but the scientists kept working. taking advantage of the final days of the short arctic summer. the 66 core samples they collected during their month at sea will be studied by scientists around the world for decades. >> this is the largest core repository in the world. >> a paleo climatologist at columbia university. he says cores collected in greenland are like a black box of the earth's inner workings. this one he collected south of greenland. >> this is today's climate. we have had 10,000 years of roll tiffly warm climate. then we go, 10,000 years in the past. boom. there is the last ice age. formed. cape cod was formed. go on. just find this color.

i guess god is saying, "you know, you are going to practice what you preach." >> reporter: there have been no major injuries or deaths reported from any of the tornados. and scott, the pastor here at first baptist church in collinsville says if the tornado would have hit 24 hours later, there would have been a group of children in this classroom for bible study. david begnaud, thank you. tonight, for the first time a health emergency declared in this country because of the zika virus. which is suspected of causing birth defects. the governor of florida put the emergency into effect in four counties including miami-dade. mosquitoes that can spread the disease. zika can also be transmitted sexually. florida has at least nine cases. all of the patients were infected overseas. but now there is concern that those patients could infect florida mosquitoes. so far, there are 48 patients in 12 states and washington, d.c.
2:59 am
one sexually transmitted case in dallas. all week this week, dr. jon lapook has been covering zika at the place that the outbreak is at its worst in brazil. jon, you have been working on why florida is taking this action. what have you learned? >> reporter: scott, i think an attempt to stay ahead of problem lowering the odds that zika virus will enter the local mosquito population in florida. no evidence that mosquitoes have the zika virus. a person gets infected with zika in brazil. flies to the united states, in florida. stays in the blood stream a week. a local mosquito in florida. bites that infected person. picks up the virus. turns around. bites an uninfected person.
3:00 am
>> john, nobody has more experience dealing with this than the brazilians. what are they doing there that we may see here later? >> scott, an all-out effort here. first, public spraying. trying to reduce mosquito breeding ground. they are going house to house. went with soldiers. public health officials. educating about prevention. small containers that contain walter scan be a breeding ground for the species of mosquito. >> you have been talking to a lot of authorities about this. what's the likelihood there will be a mosquito-borne outbreak in the united states? >> scott, i think it is very, very likely that's eventually zika will make its way into local mosquitoes in the southern part of the united states first. but all of the health officials i have spoken to think it is unlikely you will have a big outbreak on the came of something say in brazil. >> dr. jon lapook on the front line of the zika outbreak in brazil tonight. jon, thanks. six days to new hampshire. a new poll shows republican donald trump with a huge lead over iowa caucus winner ted cruz and marco rubio.
3:01 am
christie in single digits. despite the lead, julianna coleman says trump is sore about iowa. >> we did really well. >> reporter: donald trump sounded like he had come to terms with his iowa loss last night. but woke up this morning on the twitter war path. accusing senator ted cruz of stealing the election and calling for a caucus redo. the texas senator fired back. >> it is no surprise that donald is throwing yet another temper tantrum, if you like, a trumper tantrum. >> reporter: as cruz and trump battle for the insurgent mantle. jeb bush focused fire on marco rubio. >> marco rubio came in third place in a caucus state. we are all supposed to bow out. that is absolutely absurd. >> the florida senator has recently cutback on attacking rivals on the stump.
3:02 am
>> two names from the past. tied to the past. >> congress makes a choice -- >> some of rubio's toughest attacks from chris christie. who dismissed bush and ohio governor john kasich. >> this new hampshire primary now done to a choice between me and marco rubio. everybody knows it. >> what did you mean by that? >> you can tell the way the senator is engaging and i'm engaging with him. it is down to two of us on the side of the street. >> news to kasich. >> everyone has an opinion in this business. if i get absolutely smoked up here the i will go home. i don't think that is going to happen. showkasich ahead of christie. are cast. >> julianna coleman for us. the cbs "overnight news" will be

senator rand paul dropped out of the republican race today. he is going to focus now on getting re-elected to his senate seat in kentucky. now to the democrats, after losing to hillary clinton in iowa, by the narrowest of margins, bernie sanders is beating her nearbily 2:1 in the latest poll in new hampshire. here is nancy cordes. >> their argument is, look, you are behind. >> reporter: with her poll numbers sinking here, hillary clinton all but concede to bernie sanders today. putting it off on geography.
3:04 am
neighbors which i think is neighborly. >> reporter: sanders represents vermont next door. how much of your lead do you think should be attributed to the fact that you are from a neighboring state? >> if you did a poll about how many people in new hampshire new hillary clinton, how many people knew bernie sanders, i suspect more would have known hillary clinton. >> reporter: he says he is leading because he is in line with the state's progressive base. 56% of democrats who voted in new hampshire's 2008 primary called themselves liberals. 36% were moderates. sanders was asked tuesday if he thinks clinton is progressive? >> some days, yes. and then i guess she is not a progressive. >> it was kind of a low blow. >> reporter: clinton took offense. but has aligned herself with both wings of the party.
3:05 am
last year. >> i get accused of being kind of moderate and center. i plead guilty. >> reporter: here's what she said today. >> we have been fighting the progressive fight and getting >> reporter: so, what changed well, back in september, clinton challenge from the left. today, scott she says her fight is on behalf of children's health insurance, women's rights and gay rights, prove she is in progressive's corner. >> thank you, nancy. late today we learned that bill cosby will be going on trial. a pennsylvania judge refused to throw out sexual assault charges against him. jarika duncan at the courthouse in norristown. jericka?
3:06 am
courthouse ten minutes ago. the disgraced comedian's attorneys had been working to get the case thrown out. argued there was a promise by the former district attorney to never charge cosby for allegedly sexually assaulting, andrea constand. from a civil deposition, 2005, unsealed last summer. in it, constand's attorney asked cosby, when you got the quaaludes was it in your mind you were going to use the quaaludes for young women that you wanted to have sex with? cosby replied yes. the case again moves forward in preliminary hearing, scheduled next month. >> jericka duncan with the breaking news tonight. thank you. today congress investigated why veterans are being denied a cure for a deadly form of hepatitis. in a cbs news investigation we told you the cure was developed by a doctor working for the department of veterans affairs. the doctor got rich, but at $1,000 a pill, the v.a. can't afford it. here is chip reid.
3:07 am
outraged. >> certainly the taxpayers should be outraged. >> reporter: much of the anger at today's hearing was directed at some one who wasn't in the room, dr. raymond schinazi, played a leading role devil tuping a drug that cures hepatitis c. when he told his company to pharmaceutical giant, gilead in 2012. he made $400 million. did it all working 7/8 of his time for the department of veterans affairs. >> these are not full time. what i do with my remaining time is up to me. >> reporter: we first met dr. schinazi in december. >> has any bed questioned the arrangement that you have that allows you to become very wealthy while working 7/8 of your time with the government? >> february has never questioned yet. >> reporter: that changed as members including tim huelskamp grilled david shulkin. >> he just sold a company for $400 million. did anybody know about that? >> i am not aware of who knew what, three, four years ago. >> reporter: mike coffman wanted to know why schinazi got rich but the va got nothing.
3:08 am
incompetence, corruption or combination of the two. this wasted resource is why this nation is unable to take care of the men and women who served the country. >> others were upset the doctor was not there to be questioned. the va said that he retired two days ago. >> the person who is responsible always seems to retire just before the investigation starts. >> reporter: the va did approve schinazi's part time arrangement and told us part time employees are allowed to invest in private companies so long as all conflict of interest rules are followed. the va says there will be internal and external investigations. >> chip reid, thank you. well, war and poverty in syria have led to the largest refugee crisis since world war ii. more than a million refugees

3:10 am
without any outbreak of violence? >> reporter: for many germans the tipping point was new year's even cologne. police and witnesses said gangs of drunken men including many north africans and arabs groped and assaulted hundreds of women in the crowd. police are investigating 380 complaints. including rape. seattle university student, caitlyn duncan lost her boyfriend in the mayhem that night. >> someone reached up my jacket. i was in a crowd. i was kind of twisting, turning, hitting, kicking. so, it happened all very quickly. but, yeah, people grabbed, you know between my legs, my -- my head, my face. >> reporter: she didn't get a good look at her attackers but said they were all shouting in arabic. she was rescued by a group of syrian migrants. >> i was just so relieved. and then they all, you know kind

scientists are studying climate change at the top of the world glacier. 3/4 of greenland is covered in ice. each year it loses more ice then it gains in snowfall. believed to contribute to the rise in sea levels and maybe worse. sharon alfonsi traveled to the arctic circle to see what the researchers have discovered. >> great to see you. >> yeah. >> reporter: who did you upset
3:31 am
be put out here. >> the gods. >> the gods. >> keith nichols is an expert drilling in remote places. in terms of remote this would be really hard to beat. feels like you are on another planet. >> can't take a walk around here. expecting scott yo to beam you up. it is extraordinary. >> reporter: nichols and scientists are drawn to this sliver of greenland in part by the satellite images. in 2010, a chunk of ice, four times the size of manhattan, broke off. then, two years later, another large chunk came down. the glacier has receded by 20 miles in five years. nichols and his team are trying to drill beneath it. >> this is a lot of work. difficult conditions. what do you hop to learn? >> what we are trying to learn how the ocean is interacting with ice, momenting it.
3:32 am
change. they heated melt water from the glacier to make a hot water drill to pierce through the 300 foot thick ice. there has to be serious challenge to running equipment like this in this kind of weather? >> the biggest challenge we have got water. it is very cold. so if you have water freezing in hoses that can be devastating. it's for the projects. >> this is the moment the coring machine struck the bottom of the sea floor. a half mile beneath the ice, they made history. it was the first time any one has ever collected sediment from beneath the ice shelf in greenland. >> the ocean beneath is probably the least accessible part of the world ocean. and just getting access to that is a triumph frankly as far as we are concerned.
3:33 am
glacier and floats on the ocean. they believe it acts like a dam, holding back ice from sliding into the sea. if it goes away, sea levels go up. is there a sense of urgency in the work that you are doing? >> the sea level rises, the big question we are trying to get at. and peterman glacier, this experiment here, gives us an opportunity to get at the processes, and try to understand the basic physics to how that can happen. >> our visit to the ice camp was cut short. our pilots warned of something, ice fog moving in. and could strand us here for days. we high tailed it back to the helicopter. heading to another outpost of the expedition. what the scientists call boulder camp. set up on the edge of peterman glacier. steve marquatt and geologists have been here for weeks gathering samples from rocks. >> this was probably deposited when the ice was maybe a few hundred to few thousand feet thicker. when deposited you are probably talking about, 600 feet of ice
3:34 am
>> above where we are now. >> above where we are now. peterman would have been much larger, dropping the rocks all over the surface. >> to the person at home who is looking at you guys chipping at rocks why should i care about this? >> we know if you warm the planet up. glaciers respond. they melt. the question is at what rate? how fast is that going to that pen? where is if the going to happen? where are the vulnerable spots in the ice sheet. to understand all that you have to understand how the ice sheet, what controls an ice sheet. we need to understand this glacier to provide a better prediction for the ice sheet. that matters to us because of sea level. if the glaciers can respond die namingly, we should all be concerned. because the that can create dynamic changes in sea level and flood infrastructure. we need new know that planning for the future. >> reporter: we camped out next to the scientists. with 24 hours of light. we slept in the tents under the midnight sun. in the morning, we were shuttled out to meet the swedish ice
3:35 am
peterman glacier. it supports the scientists on land and acts as a floating laboratory. named after a norse god who sought wisdom. it is home to 50 climate scientists from around the world with similar convictions. their work is funded mostly by the swedish government. and the u.s. national science foundation. larry mayor, is one of geologists on the ship. and using sonar to map the ocean floor. creating the first detailed maps that show how peterman glacier see it like skid marks of a car at an accident scene. >> yeah, the ice went here. we can see it. >> reporter: how much of the world's oceans have been mapped with detail. >> 6%, 7%. >> reporter: you can make the trip to peterman glacier a few
3:36 am
melts enough to allow passage. >> see the blocks of ice drifting by. >> reporter: allen mix is running the ship's coring operation. trying to grab sediment from the sea floor. >> actually the coring site is under the block of ice. we just can't get there. we are trying to drift with the ice and sort of snook up on it. gently. >> reporter: it is hard to sneak up on anything in an ice breaker. he doesn't so much as sail, as it does smash the ice like a 13,000 ton hammer. once in position they throw a piston core, like a dart, at the bottom of the ocean. >> that doesn't sound good. >> after multiple attempts. >> go to the next up. hit it with a gravity core.
3:37 am
collected. inside the ship's lab, the multiyear process of investigating those cores, begins. what is your best guess. how old is this? >> so the base of this core -- probably is no more than 10,000 years. >> reporter: ann jennings with institute of arctic and alpine research. she says each core holds clues about peterman glacier's past. >> we didn't really expect to find things living under the ice shelf. we have. >> what have you found? sivisivides-storfi. >> easy for you to say. >> it is a seashell. single celled animal. >> reporter: the single celled animal like all living creatures is made out of carbon allowing scientists to determine when they lived. take the depth scale here. convert it to age.
3:38 am
how quickly did it retreat? was there a lot of melt water coming out? >> you can get all of that from what looks like mud? >> yes. >> reporter: after a week in greenland, we headed home. but the scientists kept working. taking advantage of the final days of the short arctic summer. the 66 core samples they collected during their month at sea will be studied by scientists around the world for decades. >> this is the largest core repository in the world. >> a paleo climatologist at columbia university. he says cores collected in greenland are like a black box of the earth's inner workings. this one he collected south of greenland. >> this is today's climate. we have had 10,000 years of relatively warm climate. then we go, 10,000 years in the past. boom. there is the last ice age. this is when long island was formed. cape cod was formed. go on. just find this color. this is filled with these rocks. ice rafted treditis.
